Α shocking book, in a good way of course! The prologue was a great start and left a good impression on me. The writting style was pleasant and not tiring; simplicity is perfection.

    2. *Genre* Young Adult, Fantasy*Rating* 3.0*Full Review & Giveaway Posted @ Gizmos Reviews 03/27/2015* gizmosreviews/201Published February 12th 2015 by Centurion Books (first published February 10th 2015)


    3. I obtained a copy of this book via Netgalley in return for an honest reviewIt's not everyday that a book has me stumpedt in a good way. Honestly, a part of me is still trying to make sense of what the heck just happenedFirst off- the Title, um, I'm sorry stones and finger bones? Did i miss something? there was no relevance to any stones or finger bones! Second- Unfeeling characters. Third- why, just why?Okay, Okay. I know i make no sense. Let's see if I can elaborate. This book, the prose and pl [...]


    4. Thank you to Xpresso Book Tours and author Jessica Minyard for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!Find this review and more on my blog The Rest Is Still Unwritten!Stones and Finger Bones is Jessica Minyard’s debut novel and is a well told and entertaining fantasy story that weaves together a story of politics, magic and danger. Vivid, sharp and charismatic, Stones and Finger Bones is a promising start to Minyard’s Black Towers series that will no doubt leave readers re [...]


    5. A wonderful debut! This book is refreshing in that it does not follow the YA formula. I was pleasantly surprised with some of the plot twists and the end has me wishing the second book was finished. I will say there are times when the story does not flow very well but it recovers quickly. I am looking forward to the next book.


    6. Aurelia is the princess of her kingdom, and with her responsibilities as princess she has to wed someone her father wants for her. Not only does she want to be Queen for her people, she wants to decide things for herself. When things start to descend into chaos, she realizes she can only depend on herself because the kingdom is at stake from an unlikely enemy.I really liked the fantasy world that Jessica built upon. Basically I imagined a renaissance era where the castles are big and drafty nest [...]


    7. While I wouldn’t call this story thrilling, it was most definitely captivating. It had a slow build right from the beginning, winding together a perfectly crafted world. It’s so believable that it reads almost like historical fiction, in a world build around magic. Minyard’s writing style was perfectly suited to this genre, and she painted the most beautiful scenes! It was so easy for me to imagine the forest, ocean or desert, the castles and the villages. And of course, Aurelia and her ki [...]


    8. When her father, the king, is murdered, Aurelia finds herself kidnapped, and learning things about her family she never imagined could be true.This is a fascinating world with a good history, and it gripped my attention well. There are some fantastic action scenes throughout and plenty of dark magic to keep us fantasy enthusiasts begging for more. Aurelia is a strong female lead, though a bit naive about her uncle. Her attitudes do not come across as forced, and she turns out to be a typical fan [...]


    9. My Review2.5 StarsI was given a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewThis book has somehow left me confused, annoyed, and wanting to read more.Which is confusing to me because I absolutely hated the characters. All of them. It was like reading a book where all of the characters have multiple personality disorder. Without any logic that I could see or follow, the charges suddenly change their entire way of thinking and acting, and then flip flop back and forth, dep [...]


    10. I received an ARC through NetGalley.I was mainly drawn to Stones and Finger Bones because of the title. It also sounded like it was going to be an exciting, dark fantasy, but for the most part I was just bored. It started off pretty great, since Aurelia must be cursed. Her second fiance has just died, and her father has already picked out her third! But then her father is murdered, she’s kidnapped, and learns that her whole life is a lie. Now, Aurelia must take back her throne, avenge her fath [...]


    11. First when I chose this book I thought, ''Stones and Finger Bones. Interesting name!'', and of course it was fantasy (my favorite genre), so the fate was decided, I had to read this book. The first chapter being interesting, if not very gripping, I read on. But as the main characters came into play and few of the important twists were in place, the story lagged, both in character development and tension building. It felt like the main characters themselves were least interested in what was happe [...]


    12. Free copy obtained from StoryCartel in return for an unbiased reviewIt started off well (there were a few jarring notes* but I took a lenient stance) till she killed the man she had fallen in love with. I stopped reading after that. * A. The old woman named Dynest said something like "I never got a chance to fetch the scroll". You have a powerful woman by your side and you never got a chance? B. Aurelia wanted to a queen, not a puppet consort (I was briefly impressed), but later she didn't even [...]


    13. Wonderful world building! The background mythos is stunning and eerie, giving just a taste of what may come in the trilogy. Considering how much intrigue is in this book, the next installment is going to be bananas.The story does take place in a misogynistic empire, which is an obvious downside, but I believe that will changing swiftly with the following two novels. Aurelia has zero agency, (and, in my opinion, makes horrible romantic decisions), up until she is finally alone, wherein she become [...]


    14. DNF at 14%. No, I can't really connect with either the story nor the character. Will not bother finishing it.


    15. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This review was originally posted on Books and LaddersI love fantasy novels, especially ones that include magic. This one had the promise of both and while we only saw a little bit of magic, I am sure we will see more in the rest of the series. However, I was still a teensy bit disappointed with the book.Aurelia was a great character -- sometimes. She was headstrong and knows how to play the political [...]


    16. *Netgalley ARC*MY REVIEWAurelia's betrothed has died and her father has already fixed her marriage with someone else. She can't get out of it, she wants to be a queen her people deserve. But one fateful night, she finds her father's dead body and the castle is sent into upheaval as the king's brother becomes the temporary regent until Aurelia marries. But Aurelia is kidnapped by a handsome but irritating man, Rycen, who infiltrated the castle as a spice merchant. As the knowledge of her father's [...]


    17. This is a new series and a new author. And it was great! I loved that I got all point of views from multiple characters because you got to see so much! You see the bad guy, the good guy, the main lady, and even a few on the side :) This one I couldn't put down because I wanted to know so much more and I can't wait to see what is gunna go down after this. But let me tell you! I totally was devastated at the end. So if you are looking for the happy, not so in depth story, this one isn't for you. I [...]


    18. Disclaimer: I received an ARC copy in exchange for a review.I am torn on this book. On the positive side, I enjoyed the historical episodes, some of the surprising turns taken, the multiple points of view and the writing itself. I think this was very engaging, and I wanted to just keep reading (and onto the rest of the series). The journal pages were my favorite part of the book, and I look forward to learning more about that period and the relationships alluded to that led to the present day. T [...]


    19. What I liked: This story leaps straight into what's going to be the main center of conflict with the prologue and then takes a step down to show us one of our main characters, Aurelia who is a princess. I really liked Aurelia because while she didn't really stand up on her own at the beginning of the book over the course of the book she begins to do that, and she's clearly not someone who is guaranteed to not be corrupted by her own magic. She's more grey than white in terms of her morality, and [...]


    20. Disclaimer: I obtained a free copy of this book from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.This book was really confusing because the characters couldn'twell, they couldn't stay in character. It's hard to review this without having some spoilers, so be warned.In one place, a duke is a doddering old man; in another he is a powerful warlord. He encourages the Princess not to marry against her wishes, then forces his sister to seduce the new King. The Princess herself swings between being a [...]


    21. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review* This was a book that I didn’t really have any expectations for. I hadn’t even read the synopsis since I requested to be part of the blog tour. So I was pleasantly surprised that it ended up so different than what I expected. There were even a few twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. I’m not sure that I really liked Aurelia. She wasn’t very likeable, although she wasn’t cruel or mean. She was just like a no [...]


    22. 3 1/2 Stars! I started Stones and Finger Bones a little wary, a little excited. I am so happy that the excitement quickly took over, and left the wariness far, far behind! It was a great fantasy novel, with a fantastic world. The world-building alone was a huge part of my excitement, and the magic made it even better. Magic pretty much makes everything better! The writing was a little shaky at times, but I was so involved in the plot, the characters lives, that I can forgive it!Stones and Finger [...]


    23. ***I received a copy in exchange for my honest review****The summary goes a little something like this:Aurelia is a princess that is next in line to receive the throne from her father. However, her father is suddenly killed by an assassin and Aurelia is kidnapped by the mercenary Rycen. Then, (surprise, surprise) the reader finds out that Marel actually instrumented his brother's death. This seemed fairly unpredictable but it worked for the story so I am not complaining (much). She then travels [...]


    24. Disclaimer: I received an ARC on Story Cartel in exchange for my honest review.While the novel had initial promise (the author writes a few great lines, and her descriptions of clothing are where she really shines), I ultimately found Stones and Finger Bones disappointing.My primary issues are with the story itself:1) The bulk of characters are very "stock fantasy trope" and many of them have inconsistent personalities.2) There were too many plot points that were left dangling, even for the firs [...]


    25. I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.Stones and Finger Bones is a book of magic, deception, treachery and confusion. Aurelia is a princess, also known as a pawn, in the game that her father is playing. However, unknown to her father, someone else wants to play and isn't afraid of a small matter of murder getting in their way. Follow this with a whirlwind kidnapping, new people, who to trust, who not to, and you get a book that is guaranteed to keep [...]


    26. I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved the story and where the name came from (you'll find out as you read). The world was interesting and I liked the character Rycin, the assassin who kidnaps Aurelia. There is a major plot twist in the story that really shocked me, and not in a good way. However, I'm hoping the next book in the series makes up for it and I will definitely be reading to find out.*I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
